So you've booked your stay with us in Crozet, Virginia! Congratulations! Now what? Is there anything to do out here or do you need to drive back into Charlottesville for fun? Many of our guests do enjoy Charlottesville, the downtown historic pedestrian mall, UVa, Monticello, all there is to offer in "town", but a real local experience can be found out here on the west side also!
Just across the road from The Inn at Sugar Hollow Farm flows the Moormans River, a picturesque mountain stream with tumbling rapids and still pools. The river runs down out of The Shenandoah National Park before joining the Mechums River to form the south fork of the Rivanna River. The best fishing seasons are around April and October, or whenever there has been adequate rainfall and the trees are relatively dormant, so that the cold spring water is flowing nicely in the river.
To continue our ongoing series on hiking around Charlottesville, Dina and I took advantage of a perfect Spring day and drove up to the base of Humpback Rocks hiking trail. We had been forewarned that this hike was pretty strenuous but we figured we are still young enough (at heart) that it would be worth a try.
There is simply no shortage of dog friendly activities and venues in Charlottesville, and after a long winter, I am sure you and your pets are ready to experience from fresh air and sunshine in the Virginia mountains!
Maybe! Bed and breakfasts are as different as snowflakes, but with a little research ( which is part of the fun) you are likely to find one that meets your expectations and will give you a unique and memorable experience.
